Twilight Delight For Christmas Lovers

Twilight Delight For Christmas Lovers
For the first time, Redcliffe will enjoy a twilight Christmas market to welcome the festive season. The best part is, the night will finish with a bang.

Mark Power, market manager, said it’s his first year bringing this event to Redcliffe and he’s hoping it will be a beautiful evening out for locals.

“We’ll have six bands performing and roving entertainment. The night will end with a firework show and, of course, we’re really excited about that,” he said.

Redcliffe Farmers and Artisan Markets are an iconic seaside marketplace held on Sunday each week. The twilight Christmas market will bring some Christmas flair and fun to a market-style event. It will also be a great place to pick up some gifts or spend time with family and friends.

“2020 has been, in a word, bizarre. We’ve all been cooped up a lot this year. We’re trying to bring a little bit of fun to the local community,” Mark said.

“In reaching out to locate fantastic vendors, we feel we’ve found some unique experiences, passionate artisans and people who are creating a wide range of things not available from a shopping centre. It gives a really nice link to an old-world charm while being very family focused.”

The Sunday markets have been continuing through the challenges of this year, and the Christmas market will continue in the same way. There’ll be ample room to move around and no restrictions on entry numbers are likely.

“We have a 750-metre site, so there’s plenty of space. But we will spread out a lot – widen it. We’ll have more entries and exits, that kind of thing,” he said.

The event certainly ticks the box for families of all ages, with entertainment, food and stalls to suit everyone. And it’s a great way to support local makers, artists and designers too.

“We’re working with local set designers and making decorations. We’re trying to work with as many local businesses as we can.”
